SRN conservative radio host Dennis Prager said Monday that he's come down with COVID-19 and that he purposely tried to get the virus. Prager told his audience that he wanted to get sick so he could get "natural immunity" against the disease instead of getting vaccinated. It's "what I hoped for the entire time," said Prager, adding that he'd intentionally hugged "strangers in the thousands" and taken photos with them to achieve his goal. "Finally, I got it from somebody," he added.

Prager told the Daily Beast that he was being treated with "therapeutics" such as the Regeneron monoclonal antibody cocktail (currently in use under Emergency Use Authorization for COVID by the FDA) and ivermectin, mainly used as an animal dewormer and not approved for COVID.

"The fact that I'm on my way to natural immunity is a high for me," Prager said Monday. "I'm thrilled about it." He missed his show on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday after testing positive and experiencing symptoms -- including a loss of sense of taste and smell -- which he says are "steadily improving."

We it comes to natural immunity, the CDC recommends that those who've had COVID should still get vaccinated. A recent study has shown that "unvaccinated individuals are more than twice as likely to be reinfected with COVID-19 than those who were fully vaccinated after initially contracting the virus." Even so, Prager noted that he still won't get the vaccine.
